Surprisingly, the inspirations did not come from “Metal Gear Solid.” Instead, a lot of the creators were influenced with the release of “Snatcher.” The adventure game first came out for the PC-8801 in 1988. It would eventually e ported over to the MSX2, PC-Engine Super CD-ROM, Sega-CD, Playstation and Sega Saturn. You can find some screens of the aforementioned “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” in the slideshow on the left side of this article and his comments below:

Game creators, film directors, manga/novel writers in age of 30-40s tell me what influenced to become creator was not MGS but SNATCHER.

One person who was influenced by “Snatcher” is Satoshi Ito, a writer that produced a novel of “Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.”

Hideo Kojima is currently working on “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A prologue for the main installment, which is called “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes,” is slated to come out next March.
